Dominus Estate Dominus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2008

$299

Made in a more masculine style, the 2008 Dominus has all of that along with bigger body and more structure, fat, density and texture. Both are brilliant wines and they represent the finest back-to-back vintages for Dominus since 2001 and 2002 or 1990 and 1991. Both the 2007 and 2008 Dominus should drink well for 25-30 years.

Nice dark currants, silky texture but, a lean Dominus at this point. Lots of blackberries, dark cherries and grippy earthiness. Definitely, wait for better thinks down the road.

Really enjoyed this wine. Nice bouquet. Everything I enjoy in a big Napa cab, dark stewed fruit, chocolate, a hint of mocha. Lasting finish. Lived up to a special occasion billing

Magic stuff! Sublime and brilliantly balanced, with down-tuned aromatics, severe structure, luxury oak treatment and an expansive, fruity mid-palate. Long, rewarding and very promising on the still youthful and multi-layered finish.

Pretty solid! Touch of funk on the end but not enough to make it offensive..
